And Today's Other Anniversary...

Tyler Durden's picture


With all eyes glued to the anniversary of the assassination of JFK 50 years ago, we thought it worth noting that the death of another important American figure - the USDollar - began exactly 100 years ago. Today in 1910 Sen. Aldrich, 1 yr after introducing an amendment to establish an income tax, convened the first secret meeting at Jekyll Island.



So what changed? [Hint: it rhymes with Schederal Schmeserve]

(h/t @Not_Jim_Cramer)

For those who still are unfamiliar with the origins of the Federal Reserve, below is the first chapter of the Secrets of the Federal Reserve:

"The matter of a uniform discount rate was discussed and settled at Jekyll Island."--Paul M. Warburg

On the night of November 22, 1910, a group of newspaper reporters stood disconsolately in the railway station at Hoboken, New Jersey. They had just watched a delegation of the nation’s leading financiers leave the station on a secret mission. It would be years before they discovered what that mission was, and even then they would not understand that the history of the United States underwent a drastic change after that night in Hoboken.

The delegation had left in a sealed railway car, with blinds drawn, for an undisclosed destination. They were led by Senator Nelson Aldrich, head of the National Monetary Commission. President Theodore Roosevelt had signed into law the bill creating the National Monetary Commission in 1908, after the tragic Panic of 1907 had resulted in a public outcry that the nation’s monetary system be stabilized. Aldrich had led the members of the Commission on a two-year tour of Europe, spending some three hundred thousand dollars of public money. He had not yet made a report on the results of this trip, nor had he offered any plan for banking reform.

Accompanying Senator Aldrich at the Hoboken station were his private secretary, Shelton; A. Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and Special Assistant of the National Monetary Commission; Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York, Henry P. Davison, senior partner of J.P. Morgan Company, and generally regarded as Morgan’s personal emissary; and Charles D. Norton, president of the Morgan-dominated First National Bank of New York. Joining the group just before the train left the station were Benjamin Strong, also known as a lieutenant of J.P. Morgan; and Paul Warburg, a recent immigrant from Germany who had joined the banking house of Kuhn, Loeb

Six years later, a financial writer named Bertie Charles Forbes (who later founded the Forbes Magazine; the present editor, Malcom Forbes, is his son), wrote:

"Picture a party of the nation’s greatest bankers stealing out of New York on a private railroad car under cover of darkness, stealthily hieing hundred of miles South, embarking on a mysterious launch, sneaking onto an island deserted by all but a few servants, living there a full week under such rigid secrecy that the names of not one of them was once mentioned lest the servants learn the identity and disclose to the world this strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance. I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written . . . . The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done. Senator Aldrich notified each one to go quietly into a private car of which the railroad had received orders to draw up on an unfrequented platform. Off the party set. New York’s ubiquitous reporters had been foiled . . . Nelson (Aldrich) had confided to Henry, Frank, Paul and Piatt that he was to keep them locked up at Jekyll Island, out of the rest of the world, until they had evolved and compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System, the plan done on Jekyll Island in the conference with Paul, Frank and Henry . . . . Warburg is the link that binds the Aldrich system and the present system together. He more than any one man has made the system possible as a working reality."

The official biography of Senator Nelson Aldrich states:

"In the autumn of 1910, six men went out to shoot ducks, Aldrich, his secretary Shelton, Andrews, Davison, Vanderlip and Warburg. Reporters were waiting at the Brunswick (Georgia) station. Mr. Davison went out and talked to them. The reporters dispersed and the secret of the strange journey was not divulged. Mr. Aldrich asked him how he had managed it and he did not volunteer the information."

Davison had an excellent reputation as the person who could conciliate warring factions, a role he had performed for J.P. Morgan during the settling of the Money Panic of 1907. Another Morgan partner, T.W. Lamont, says:

"Henry P. Davison served as arbitrator of the Jekyll Island expedition."

From these references, it is possible to piece together the story. Aldrich’s private car, which had left Hoboken station with its shades drawn, had taken the financiers to Jekyll Island, Georgia. Some years earlier, a very exclusive group of millionaires, led by J.P. Morgan, had purchased the island as a winter retreat. They called themselves the Jekyll Island Hunt Club, and, at first, the island was used only for hunting expeditions, until the millionaires realized that its pleasant climate offered a warm retreat from the rigors of winters in New York, and began to build splendid mansions, which they called "cottages", for their families’ winter vacations. The club building itself, being quite isolated, was sometimes in demand for stag parties and other pursuits unrelated to hunting. On such occasions, the club members who were not invited to these specific outings were asked not to appear there for a certain number of days. Before Nelson Aldrich’s party had left New York, the club’s members had been notified that the club would be occupied for the next two weeks.

The Jekyll Island Club was chosen as the place to draft the plan for control of the money and credit of the people of the United States, not only because of its isolation, but also because it was the private preserve of the people who were drafting the plan. The New York Times later noted, on May 3, 1931, in commenting on the death of George F. Baker, one of J.P. Morgan’s closest associates, that "Jekyll Island Club has lost one of its most distinguished members. One-sixth of the total wealth of the world was represented by the members of the Jekyll Island Club." Membership was by inheritance only.

The Aldrich group had no interest in hunting. Jekyll Island was chosen for the site of the preparation of the central bank because it offered complete privacy, and because there was not a journalist within fifty miles. Such was the need for secrecy that the members of the party agreed, before arriving at Jekyll Island, that no last names would be used at any time during their two week stay. The group later referred to themselves as the First Name Club, as the last names of Warburg, Strong, Vanderlip and the others were prohibited during their stay. The customary attendants had been given two week vacations from the club, and new servants brought in from the mainland for this occasion who did not know the names of any of those present. Even if they had been interrogated after the Aldrich party went back to New York, they could not have given the names. This arrangement proved to be so satisfactory that the members, limited to those who had actually been present at Jekyll Island, later had a number of informal get-togethers in New York.

Why all this secrecy? Why this thousand mile trip in a closed railway car to a remote hunting club? Ostensibly, it was to carry out a program of public service, to prepare banking reform which would be a boon to the people of the United States, which had been ordered by the National Monetary Commission. The participants were no strangers to public benefactions. Usually, their names were inscribed on brass plaques, or on the exteriors of buildings which they had donated. This was not the procedure which they followed at Jekyll Island. No brass plaque was ever erected to mark the selfless actions of those who met at their private hunt club in 1910 to improve the lot of every citizen of the United States.

In fact, no benefaction took place at Jekyll Island. The Aldrich group journeyed there in private to write the banking and currency legislation which the National Monetary Commission had been ordered to prepare in public. At stake was the future control of the money and credit of the United States. If any genuine monetary reform had been prepared and presented to Congress, it would have ended the power of the elitist one world money creators. Jekyll Island ensured that a central bank would be established in the United States which would give these bankers everything they had always wanted.

As the most technically proficient of those present, Paul Warburg was charged with doing most of the drafting of the plan. His work would then be discussed and gone over by the rest of the group. Senator Nelson Aldrich was there to see that the completed plan would come out in a form which he could get passed by Congress, and the other bankers were there to include whatever details would be needed to be certain that they got everything they wanted, in a finished draft composed during a onetime stay. After they returned to New York, there could be no second get together to rework their plan. They could not hope to obtain such secrecy for their work on a second journey.

The Jekyll Island group remained at the club for nine days, working furiously to complete their task. Despite the common interests of those present, the work did not proceed without friction. Senator Aldrich, always a domineering person, considered himself the chosen leader of the group, and could not help ordering everyone else about. Aldrich also felt somewhat out of place as the only member who was not a professional banker. He had had substantial banking interests throughout his career, but only as a person who profited from his ownership of bank stock. He knew little about the technical aspects of financial operations. His opposite number, Paul Warburg, believed that every question raised by the group demanded, not merely an answer, but a lecture. He rarely lost an opportunity to give the members a long discourse designed to impress them with the extent of his knowledge of banking. This was resented by the others, and often drew barbed remarks from Aldrich. The natural diplomacy of Henry P. Davison proved to be the catalyst which kept them at their work. Warburg’s thick alien accent grated on them, and constantly reminded them that they had to accept his presence if a central bank plan was to be devised which would guarantee them their future profits. Warburg made little effort to smooth over their prejudices, and contested them on every possible occasion on technical banking questions, which he considered his private preserve.

"In all conspiracies there must be great secrecy."

The "monetary reform" plan prepared at Jekyll Island was to be presented to Congress as the completed work of the National Monetary Commission. It was imperative that the real authors of the bill remain hidden. So great was popular resentment against bankers since the Panic of 1907 that no Congressman would dare to vote for a bill bearing the Wall Street taint, no matter who had contributed to his campaign expenses. The Jekyll Island plan was a central bank plan, and in this country there was a long tradition of struggle against inflicting a central bank on the American people. It had begun with Thomas Jefferson’s fight against Alexander Hamilton’s scheme for the First Bank of the United States, backed by James Rothschild. It had continued with President Andrew Jackson’s successful war against Alexander Hamilton’s scheme for the Second Bank of the United States, in which Nicholas Biddle was acting as the agent for James Rothschild of Paris. The result of that struggle was the creation of the Independent Sub-Treasury System, which supposedly had served to keep the funds of the United States out of the hands of the financiers. A study of the panics of 1873, 1893, and 1907 indicates that these panics were the result of the international bankers’ operations in London. The public was demanding in 1908 that Congress enact legislation to prevent the recurrence of artificially induced money panics. Such monetary reform now seemed inevitable. It was to head off and control such reform that the National Monetary Commission had been set up with Nelson Aldrich at its head, since he was majority leader of the Senate.

The main problem, as Paul Warburg informed his colleagues, was to avoid the name "Central Bank". For that reason, he had decided upon the designation of "Federal Reserve System". This would deceive the people into thinking it was not a central bank. However, the Jekyll Island plan would be a central bank plan, fulfilling the main functions of a central bank; it would be owned by private individuals who would profit from ownership of shares. As a bank of issue, it would control the nation’s money and credit.

In the chapter on Jekyll Island in his biography of Aldrich, Stephenson writes of the conference:

"How was the Reserve Bank to be controlled? It must be controlled by Congress. The government was to be represented in the board of directors, it was to have full knowledge of all the Bank’s, affairs, but a majority of the directors were to be chosen, directly or indirectly, by the banks of the association."

Thus the proposed Federal Reserve Bank was to be "controlled by Congress" and answerable to the government, but the majority of the directors were to be chosen, "directly or indirectly" by the banks of the association. In the final refinement of Warburg’s plan, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors would be appointed by the President of the United States, but the real work of the Board would be controlled by a Federal Advisory Council, meeting with the Governors. The Council would be chosen by the directors of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks, and would remain unknown to the public.

The next consideration was to conceal the fact that the proposed "Federal Reserve System" would be dominated by the masters of the New York money market. The Congressmen from the South and the West could not survive if they voted for a Wall Street plan. Farmers and small businessmen in those areas had suffered most from the money panics. There had been great popular resentment against the Eastern bankers, which during the nineteenth century became a political movement known as "populism". The private papers of Nicholas Biddle, not released until more than a century after his death, show that quite early on the Eastern bankers were fully aware of the widespread public opposition to them.

Paul Warburg advanced at Jekyll Island the primary deception which would prevent the citizens from recognizing that his plan set up a central bank. This was the regional reserve system. He proposed a system of four (later twelve) branch reserve banks located in different sections of the country. Few people outside the banking world would realize that the existing concentration of the nation’s money and credit structure in New York made the proposal of a regional reserve system a delusion.

Another proposal advanced by Paul Warburg at Jekyll Island was the manner of selection of administrators for the proposed regional reserve system. Senator Nelson Aldrich had insisted that the officials should be appointive, not elected, and that Congress should have no role in their selection. His Capitol Hill experience had taught him that congressional opinion would often be inimical to the Wall Street interests, as Congressmen from the West and South might wish to demonstrate to their constituents that they were protecting them against the Eastern bankers.

Warburg responded that the administrators of the proposed central banks should be subject to executive approval by the President. This patent removal of the system from Congressional control meant that the Federal Reserve proposal was unconstitutional from its inception, because the Federal Reserve System was to be a bank of issue. Article 1, Sec. 8, Par. 5 of the Constitution expressly charges Congress with "the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof.". Warburg’s plan would deprive Congress of its sovereignty, and the systems of checks and balances of power set up by Thomas Jefferson in the Constitution would now be destroyed. Administrators of the proposed system would control the nation’s money and credit, and would themselves be approved by the executive department of the government. The judicial department (the Supreme Court, etc.) was already virtually controlled by the executive department through presidential appointment to the bench.

Paul Warburg later wrote a massive exposition of his plan, The Federal Reserve System, Its Origin and Growth7 of some 1750 pages, but the name "Jekyll Island" appears nowhere in this text. He does state (Vol. 1, p. 58):

"But then the conference closed, after a week of earnest deliberation, the rough draft of what later

became the Aldrich Bill had been agreed upon, and a plan had been outlined which provided for a ‘National Reserve Association,’ meaning a central reserve organization with an elastic note issue based on gold and commercial paper."

On page 60, Warburg writes, "The results of the conference were entirely confidential. Even the fact there had been a meeting was not permitted to become public." He adds in a footnote, "Though eighteen [sic] years have since gone by, I do not feel free to give a description of this most interesting conference concerning which Senator Aldrich pledged all participants to secrecy."

B.C. Forbes’ revelation of the secret expedition to Jekyll Island, had had surprisingly little impact. It did not appear in print until two years after the Federal Reserve Act had been passed by Congress, hence it was never read during the period when it could have had an effect, that is, during the Congressional debate on the bill. Forbes’ story was also dismissed, by those "in the know," as preposterous, and a mere invention. Stephenson mentions this on page 484 of his book about Aldrich.

"This curious episode of Jekyll Island has been generally regarded as a myth. B.C. Forbes got some information from one of the reporters. It told in vague outline the Jekyll Island story, but made no impression and was generally regarded as a mere yarn."

The coverup of the Jekyll Island conference proceeded along two lines, both of which were successful. The first, as Stephenson mentions, was to dismiss the entire story as a romantic concoction which never actually took place. Although there were brief references to Jekyll Island in later books concerning the Federal Reserve System, these also attracted little public attention. As we have noted, Warburg’s massive and supposedly definite work on the Federal Reserve System does not mention Jekyll Island at all, although he does admit that a conference took place. In none of his voluminous speeches or writings do the words "Jekyll Island" appear, with a single notable exception. He agreed to Professor Stephenson’s request that he prepare a brief statement for the Aldrich biography. This appears on page 485 as part of "The Warburg Memorandum". In this excerpt, Warburg writes, "The matter of a uniform discount rate was discussed and settled at Jekyll Island."

Another member of the "First Name Club" was less reticent. Frank Vanderlip later published a few brief references to the conference. In the Saturday Evening Post, February 9, 1935, p. 25, Vanderlip wrote:

"Despite my views about the value to society of greater publicity for the affairs of corporations, there was an occasion near the close of 1910, when I was as secretive, indeed, as furtive, as any conspirator. . . . Since it would have been fatal to Senator Aldrich’s plan to have it known that he was calling on anybody from Wall Street to help him in preparing his bill, precautions were taken that would have delighted the heart of James Stillman (a colorful and secretive banker who was President of the National City Bank during the Spanish-American War, and who was thought to have been involved in getting us into that war) . . . I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System."

In a Travel feature in The Washington Post, March 27, 1983, "Follow The Rich to Jekyll Island", Roy Hoopes writes:

 "In 1910, when Aldrich and four financial experts wanted a place to meet in secret to reform the country’s banking system, they faked a hunting trip to Jekyll and for 10 days holed up in the Clubhouse, where they made plans for what eventually would become the Federal Reserve Bank."

Vanderlip later wrote in his autobiography, From Farmboy to Financier:

"Our secret expedition to Jekyll Island was the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System. The essential points of the Aldrich Plan were all contained in the Federal Reserve Act as it was passed."

Professor E.R.A. Seligman, a member of the international banking family of J. & W. Seligman, and head of the Department of Economics at Columbia University, wrote in an essay published by the Academy of Political Science, Proceedings, v. 4, No. 4, p. 387-90:

"It is known to a very few how great is the indebtedness of the United States to Mr. Warburg. For it may be said without fear of contradiction that in its fundamental features the Federal Reserve Act is the work of Mr. Warburg more than any other man in the country. The existence of a Federal Reserve Board creates, in everything but in name, a real central bank. In the two fundamentals of command of reserves and of a discount policy, the Federal Reserve Act has frankly accepted the principle of the Aldrich Bill, and these principles, as has been stated, were the creation of Mr. Warburg and Mr. Warburg alone. It must not be forgotten that Mr. Warburg had a practical object in view. In formulating his plans and in advancing in them slightly varying suggestions from time to time, it was incumbent on him to remember that the education of the country must be gradual and that a large part of the task was to break down prejudices and remove suspicion. His plans therefore contained all sorts of elaborate suggestions designed to guard the public against fancied dangers and to persuade the country that the general scheme was at all practicable. It was the hope of Mr. Warburg that with the lapse of time it might be possible to eliminate from the law a few clauses which were inserted largely at his suggestion for educational purposes."

Now that the public debt of the United States has passed a trillion dollars, we may indeed admit "how great is the indebtedness of the United States to Mr. Warburg." At the time he wrote the Federal Reserve Act, the public debt was almost nonexistent.

Professor Seligman points out Warburg’s remarkable prescience that the real task of the members of the Jekyll Island conference was to prepare a banking plan which would gradually "educate the country" and "break down prejudices and remove suspicion". The campaign to enact the plan into law succeeded in doing just that.

Sigh... Nothing personal, but you (and the millions of Americans) are misinformed by US media.

Kennedy’s foreign policy alienated Cuba and brought the US terribly close to nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union.

He ordered an operation, The Bay of Pigs, for Cuban exiles to invade the island and overthrow Castro. It was a complete disaster and proved to be an epic failure (more than Obamacare) that only pushed Fidel Castro into anti-American paranoia. Castro, fearing a future US attack, asked that the Soviet Union install nuclear weapons on the island.

Kennedy was heavily involved in getting the US involved in Vietnam to the point of large-scale troop deployment. He put over 14K US "advisers" into Vietnam during his short presidency. Johnson kept all of JFK's advisors and same policy for the region. JFK's policies trapped the US in a stupid conflict that claimed over 58K American lives (vs. 4.5K American lives during Bush-Obama Iraq war).

Actually bay of pigs was Eisenhower + the CIA, the US propaganda machine was big behind overthrowing Castro too and Kennedy had pretty much no choice but to go along.

Kennedy (and krushchev) actually stood against the military when the military insanely attemped to provoke a nuclear holocaust during the cuban missile crisis, gotta give the man some credit.

And on Vietnam McNamara said Kennedy wanted to pull out, and there's a lot of evidence to support that (NSAM). 

So, what you're saying is not clear cut at all. There's lots to support the notion that Kennedy was one of the few presidents to go against the wishes of the MIC.

One little correction. Eisenhower had the op planned but Kennedy personally ordered the air support canceled. Thereby ensuring defeat for the rebels.

In reality, Khrushchev didn't back down - he agreed to remove the Cuban missiles because the US withdrew their nuke missiles (aimed at Moscow) from Turkey & Italy.

She was just one of many. 

Anyone see the 'Edna' special on HBO a few months back? 

She was basically raped, layed down like a board, and de-hymened in a state of shock, couldn't move, as the strange-looking JFK spelunked her uneaten deli meat with his wafflebinger. 

Then, she was a sex slave from that moment on like a trained dog. 

JFK would even command her around by snapping his fingers.  One time Edna was in the pool with JFK and his fat toad of an aid.  JFK looked over at the fat toad, 'Blow him' and she dutifully dog paddled over and began to work on the overweight geriatric, straining her cervical discs rapidly, like a golf ball washer. 

JFK, I think, sat in the shallow end of the pool in a blow up donut and jerked off while watching. 

That's who infects DC.  Anthony Weiner was just trying to run for POTUS and show them boys he was ready.  It was part of the portfolio.

Interesting idea. Only problem is, you can't keep all your money in savings, you need to keep enough of it out of savings in order to do things like, you know, live your life. That money will get eaten alive. The poor and middle class are disproportionately affected.

Also, your theory completely breaks down around 2008.

If you put a chart of $1 invested at the bank savings rate over that period of time, it would look identical.

This man has figured it out! $1 still looks like $1! Sure, it's worth less than a tenth, but it looks the same gawddamnit!!

Money in savings accounts can be spent the same day, money in equities can be liquidated and spent within 5 days. Anyone (in the U.S.) with discipline, who hasn't had the bad luck of getting into medical debt, can get credit cards with limits that are plenty to "live life". So your money never needs to be liquid until the bill is due. You can (almost) always be making money on your savings if it is diversified. You liquidate the portions with gains and hold the portions that are at loss.

I'm not so sure it is the poor and middle class who are disproportionately affected so much as the uneducated. When parents don't bother teaching their children about finance and fail to encourage learning more, the children are put at a disadvantage. That disadvantage tends to turn to bitterness when it causes financial hardship.

I have sent the following to my two senators, Corker and Paul. The Senate committee's confirmation hearing was depressing for its lack of quality questions. Copy and send to your Senators and maybe we could get Yellen to tell us her thoughts on Weimar Hyper-Inflation.......

For the Yellen confirmation hearing, I beg you to ask tough questions on Fed Policy. When a central bank wants inflation, the central bank has already lost control, because they have lost control over "monetary velocity". Please read Adam Fergusson book on Weimar Inflation or, at a minimum, watch James Turk interview Adam Fergusson in the youtube link. 

When Money Dies, The Nightmare of the Weimar Hyper-Inflation of 1923 by Adam Fergusson

Many Americans fear a $17+ and growing debt with greater than $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and the conflict with citizens' interest when the central bank is printing $85 billion a month. The Senate committee's confirmation hearing was depressing. America needs a Volcker and Yellen is no Volcker. The Federal Reserve will play a huge role in America's psychology and confidence in the currency and economic activity as we face the cliff. Yellen will fail, because the decisions require a Volcker. To understand, you need to view the youtube video.

The Fed is ultimately a clever debt kiting scheme designed to monetize America's worldwide [and now severly fading] goodwill. The American people, ourselves, deserve as much blame for our financal excesses of the past 100 years as Congress and the poor academician dupes at the Schmed!

“The combat and instability would continue because its real source was the political contract struck between democracy and capital back in 1913, the implicit decision that democratic politics could not be trusted to act responsibly in the national interest. Therefore, the authority and responsibilities of elected politicians were permanently curtailed. Put another way, the elected government was allowed to be permanently irresponsible – free to indulge its own follies and protected from the accountability by the higher authority, the non-elected central bank. The creation of the Federal   Reserve represented a great retreat from democratic possibilities. The maturing of selfgovernment was forever stunted.” Pg. 534, Secrets of the Temple – How the Federal

Reserve Runs the Country, William Greider, Simon and Schuster, 1987

Although I agree with you, Seal, it is WAY WORSE!

Giving away the power to control the public money supply to public banks practically destroyed democracy, rather than merely that the "maturing of self government was forever stunted.” It has now become so globalized, with nation states entangled in so many international treaties, which have effectively transferred power to international organizations (and the international corporations that benefit from those treaties) that the national democracies are practically dead. Just as the lives of everyone became totally entangled in the parasitism of the money supply, so that almost everyone who owns anything is a victim of that system, and all the benefits from that system are inextricably entangled in their overall debt slavery, so too, the various nations, including even the USA, have become too entangled in the traps of international systems set up by the banksters for their benefit. Runaway international evils, such as the corporate controlled Codex Alimentarius, etc., are systematically enslaving people! All the problems are now the entanglements of globalized controls, over which no citizens within nation states have significant direct power to influence, since their corrupt politicians have more and more given away their theoretical "democratic" powers to influence the legal system to unaccountable international organizations. Therefore, it has become almost impossible how even political miracles within one country could succeed, since it would practically take simultaneous political miracles in many other countries, in order for the runaway fascist plutocracy juggernaut, that has ALREADY been created, to not turn the vast majority of people into its road kill, since there are no longer enough powers left in their elected legislatures to change anything that matters, without that running afoul of numerous entangling international treaties, which are constantly being wrapped in more layers, tighter, around the people by the banksters and their corporations, through the actions of their puppet politicians, while the mass media make sure that almost none of the public understands what is really happening.

A few obvious quotes to repeat:

As the first ROTHSCHILD stated:

"Give me control of a nation's currency, and I care not who makes its laws."


"Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile ... Once a nation parts with control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes that nation's laws ... Usury once in control will wreck any nation."


"The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of the government but it is the government's greatest creative opportunity. By adoption of the these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity."

Creating the money supply, as a public utility, in ways which strives to benefit everyone equally, should be government's supreme prerogative, and greatest creative opportunity, and its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility.

Instead, giving away the power to make money out of nothing to private banks was the most insane domestic policy that a government could ever adopt! However, it is easy to explain the history of how that actually happened. It was simply the history of the application of the methods of organized crime to take control over governments, in a runaway spiral of the success of fraud enabling those who did that to constantly be able to get away with even more frauds. That started more slowly and secretly. However, it was on an exponential growth curve, so that it now is becoming blatantly obvious to even mainstream morons that the banksters have become the new royalty, who are above the law, because they effectively control the political processes.

Fri, 11/22/2013 - 21:36 | 4182720 Radical Marijuana

The first level of understanding the Federal Reserve Board history is to perceive it as the triumph of the application of the methods of organized crime covertly being able to take control over the government. The next is level is to generalize that process, and understand why it is universal.

I would guess that several decades ago, less than 0.000001% of Americans understood anything about the reality of the Federal Reserve. Only tiny groups of intellectuals were aware of the facts, e.g. Ezra Pound, etc. ... Today, I would guess than perhaps somewhere between 1% to 5% of Americans understand the reality of the Federal Reserve. That has still not reached the critical threshold of having at least 10% wake up to those facts. Indeed, I would guess that it would take at least 5% to know the facts well, and another 20% to have nodding acquaintance with those facts, before "something" might be done about those facts. However, as we approached such a possible turning point, it would practically guaranteed that there would be more false flag attacks, and martial law, and murders, and all the rest of the panoply of the methods of organized crime resorted to in order to stop anything really changing with regard to the control over the public money supply.

One of my all-time favourite quotes about the nature of the problem comes from President James Madison:

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance."



The last President in American history that was able to defeat the international bankers was President Andrew Jackson, who had to almost miraculously survive their attempts to assassinate him, in order to succeed in doing that.

President Jackson stated:

"The bold effort of the present bank had made to control the government, the distress it had wantonly produced are premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."

Jackson said to the bankers, mincing no words:

"You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out."

Jackson's administration was the first and only in US history to have eliminated the national debt, by routing out the pit vipers of the International Banking Cartel, thus avoiding the distresses of deflations and the horrors of hyper-inflation, that invariably follow borrowing "money" from the Banking Cartel. The Federal Reserve Board represents a Century of the International Banksters being able to take control of the American money supply, and through that leverage eventually gaining almost total control over the government, and almost all social institutions. Therefore, the government of the USA today is around 99% based on legalized lies, backed by legalized violence. Since the USA was able to dominate the world since World War II, the domination of the government of the USA was a means whereby the international banking cartel was able to dominate the whole world.

This important insight is from Carroll Quigley:

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreement, arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland."



In that context, there are good reasons to return to the deeper levels of understanding not merely how the best organized gangs of criminals were able to take control of the government of the USA, through legislation such as what created the Federal Reserve Board, but moreover, WHY GOVERNMENT IS ORGANIZED CRIME, CONTROLLED BY THE BEST ORGANIZED GANG OF CRIMINALS.

I would say that less than one in a million Americans understand WHY in any deep enough ways, because they take for granted their obsolete false fundamental dichotomies, and related impossible ideals. While surely at least 1% of Americans now understand how evil the Federal Reserve Board actually is, I would still stay that almost nobody understands that "evil" itself in any more profoundly philosophical ways, because the basic language, and philosophy of science that most take for granted is profoundly backwards, while almost nobody begins to understand that any better, by going through profound enough paradigm shifts in the philosophy of science, by comprehending where we went so extremely wrong, when the biggest bullies' bullshit view was incorporated into the philosophy of science that almost everyone takes for granted today.

American history was very interesting, due to the running battles between the bankers and the people, where the people occasionally won some of those battles for a while. However, since the international bankers were able to corrupt Congress to stealthily demonetize silver, back in the early 1870s, the American money system was steadily undermined and destroyed. However, the kinds of intellectual scientific revolutions which would be necessary to cope with that go far, far beyond "Ending the Fed," and most of the superficial suggestions about what to replace the Federal Reserve Board system with, as a new system.

Of course, at the present time, it is still practically impossible to imagine how it would be realistically possible to "End the Fed," since the current political dynamics are driven by matching groups of Vicious Wolf People, in sheep's clothing, who effectively control masses of Zombie Sheeple, through paying for an army of militarized police, who are the more Domesticate Dogs who get paid to herd the Sheeple, while the controlled opposition is mostly, so far, nothing but different kinds of Black Sheep, continuing to bleat the morality taught to them by the Wolves, and therefore, recommending that everyone should become better sheep.

In reality, the social systems look like they are terminally sick and insane, due to the almost total runaway triumph of society being controlled by legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, in which system the force backed frauds of the Federal Reserve Board are the central core. Not only do way too few people understand that, but moreover, almost nobody understands that well enough. America, and the rest of the world, needs an intellectual scientific revolution, which would apply from the philosophy of science, throughout all aspects of politics, in order to be able to understand WHY everything has ended up almost totally BACKWARDS! More than anything else, we need a more scientific understanding of "every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible," BECAUSE THAT IS HOW IT HAPPENS, AND THAT IS WHAT WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT WHY!

Understanding "WHY" governments are organized crime, controlled by the best organized gangs of criminals, is what is needed to change how that is being done. It is not good enough to understand some superficial aspects of the psychology of the ruling classes, as the explanation "why." We should develop and appreciate a much more profound paradigm shifting understanding of human evolutionary ecology, in ways whereby our understanding of energy systems itself is revolutionized, in order to cope with the social facts that society is being controlled by the people who are the best at being dishonest, and backing that up with violence. There are NO good solutions to be found by approaching that problem with the same old false fundamental dichotomies and their related impossible ideals.

What the history of the Federal Reserve Board really demonstrates is that MONEY IS MEASUREMENT BACKED BY MURDER, and that there are no real solutions outside of that frame of reference. There are no ways to wish away or banish the basic social facts that "every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible" HAS ACTUALLY BEEN WHAT CONTROLLED CIVILIZATIONS.

THAT is why we need a profound intellectual scientific revolution in order to understand, so that we might be able to resolve the chronic political problems better. However, obviously, for the foreseeable future, we will have to watch and wait, as the international bankers drive their systems towards mad self-destruction, as the final failures from too much force backed frauds "successfully" controlling civilization ...

Hey, that's awesome!

How about you produce your own blog, and provide links to ZH?    You have an excellent way with words and logical processes, and obviously take the time to compose your very own thoughts, rather than simply regurgitating those of others.  It then becomes your stamp on history, something you can look back upon and refer to, and you can truly say: "I did that!" An advantage of your own blog is that you can use whatever fonts you desire - I too find ALLCAPS, bold, bold ALLCAPS, italic and bold italic (and underlining, but you don't seem to underline very often) to be so very limiting in attempting to reinforce and enhance one's most salient points.  I find that different colours work well, and something that's really attention-grabbing for me personally is flashing coloured lines or words.

Go to it, and publish what you want on your own blog!  The NSA have got your details by now in any case, so at the end of the day it doesn't matter...

Assuming that Paul Warburg was not acting solely for his own account, can we answer this question:  who is it exactly that Paul Warburg was acting on behalf of (in his capacity as an agent)?

The Warburg family was based in Germany and involved in banking for a long time.  Paul Warburg himself grew up in Germany and only came to the US much later in life.

Thus, Paul Warburg was a FOREIGN agent (sent to the US for the express purpose of setting up a central bank there as had existed in the major European nations for a long time).

So who was it that sent him?

And why is it that Bernanke and Greenspan have never been questioned as to Paul Warburg's role in establishing the Federal Reserve?

From Wikipedia:

"Upon arriving in New York in 1902, Warburg drafted a critique of the American banking system, which he thought was insufficiently centralized."

"Although a major factor in German finance, after frequent business trips to New York Warburg settled there in 1902 as a partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Co., where the influential Jacob Schiff, his wife's brother-in-law, was senior partner."

So what does Paul Warburg and Jacob Schiff have in common in terms of who they are and who they were connected to in Europe?

Looking at the group of people and their worth etc. what made it imperative for this event to occur and the fed form? Along the lines what did they know already and ordinary people had yet to glimpse.

1860 - not as fast at developing things back then but the real game changer was the internal combustion engine economically and the writing was on the wall by 1910. At that point the question is this. Were they out to make themselves immortal forever in a economic system that would forever feed them or was it because of the game changer.

Personally I think that was what unfolded over those few days.
